Dear All,

Looking beyond the year 2020, How would you think that the world of life science research be? (or rather you want to vision). Please opine considering the present scenario in genomics, biotechnology, nanotechnology etcetera. The best article would be redeemed with a gift.

Science is organized knowledge. Wisdom is organized life.

Biospot hopes you would join this great life science world reach past success through your opinions.
